Tropers / Mystery Otaku
Mystery Otaku is Exactly What It Says on the Tin
. If you have a mystery series, she has probably read it or watched it. Crime drama seems to be her favorite genre to write outside (well, not exclusively outside) of the fanfiction community. Outside TVTropes
, this troper has a very suspiciously anime-like reality, from a pretty, more popular big sister
to friends whose entire apartment is a Hacker Cave
to having found exactly twelve different deliveries of a common phrase in order to annoy her parentals
. She is also her group's Deadpan Snarker
most of the time, as if she doesn't say it, nobody else will. Much for the same reason, she is a bit of a Pungeon Master
Her interests tend to include the Victorian era and its literature, Dungeons and Dragons
, anime, herbology, anatomy, writing, mystery and crime novels, Pokémon
, and Ho Yay, Foe Yay and Les Yay
Manga that hold her interest currently are One Piece
, Detective Conan
, Soul Eater
. Don't expect that list to be the same for anime.
Some Examples of Tropes In Her Everyday Life:

- Appeal to Obscurity: Happens a lot.
Mystery Otaku: It's okay, Sara, no matter what you did, all will be forgotten in the future. Look at the Yellow Turbans!
